that government may not substantially burden the free exercise of religion without it extremely wait of public interest. and i defend those ideas. the second prong of my approach is for consistency and a self examination in our approach to the religion of other people. many policies lack the basic virtue to have a coherent and consistent policy across similar cases. many are flawed in a deeper way people act in ways to give there group special privileges. so we will see that but the third prong i argue even with good principles and consisting reasoning we still need something more. active, a curious imagination learned about the lives of others and coming to see how the world looks from other points of view i give works of literature from both adults come to children to promote the a understanding. i use the history of prejudice as a historical case that is good to think about. for the 19th century antisemitism it has the unfortunate features and the obvious wrongness may guide us as we think of issues that are too close to be seen with a clarity deserved. but now with second prong and princip
and animosity with the wars of religion but also colonial religious domination by europeans and added to that anti-catholicism that implicated not only germany but other nations as well year in the u.s. like to think those times are in the past and religious violence was somewhere else and characterized by christian values. today we have many reasons to doubt that. searching for critical self examination as we have the ear and suspicion to disfigure all democracy. april 2011 in france it is illegal to cover the face from parks to the marketplace of local law does not mention the word winded, and muslim or fail or burqa but it was a band on veiling but it did threatens french values of dignity and equality. although france is a good country to put the ban on the burqa in public space but it is being considered all over europe in many have adopted restrictions. april 28, 2011 belgium voted for a similar ban although it is expected to be challenged. spain 2010 the catalonia and assembly nearly rejected the ban on the burqa reid -- reversing an earlier vote. similar votes are in progress
separation between matters of the state and religion -- at least officially -- but in some parts of the world like saudi arabia, the state is governed in accordance to religious principles. the country's laws are based on wahhabi is long, the particularly strict interpretation of the muslim faith -- wahhabi islam. \ women, for instance, how far fewer rights than men. campaigners have accused saudi arabia of violating human rights. now, controversies have erupted in kosovo where the automation has invested millions in building mosques. even moderate muslims are worried at these developments. than a religious dignitaries from the world over are gathered for the dedication ceremony of the international center for into religious and intercultural dialogue. the three founding nations -- saudi arabia, spain, and austria -- were represented by their foreign ministers. among the 600 guests was the united nations secretary- general. the saudi government provided some 15 million euros in funding for the dialogue center for the first three years. >> we are most grateful to his majesty for his farsighted
. it is not the same religion, but we have much in common. >> but others could not accept the idea of muslims praying in a former christian church. >> i think it would be better if they set up a mosque someplace else in town. ifhe christians keep giving ground, we will lose our faith and identity. after all, france is a christian country. >> the sale of the church would not have had a happy ending. for the archdiocese responsible for the church got involved and decided instead to sell the church to a charity. the bishop justified the decision by saying the paris- based charity was nondenominational. this even though it is called the fraternity of st. aloysius and is dedicated to the same st. as the church. they are collecting donations to buy the building. their motto "stop the mosque" makes their position clear. >> we are opposed to converting the church into a mosque. christenings, weddings, and funerals were once held there. now that will all be wiped away. the church will be something else entirely. we have gathered thousands of signatures from all over france and from canada and switzerland. som
of the 20th century. he did not in the end adopt some foreign religion. he adopted his own religion, that of his ancestors. similarly, we don't have to seek to have islamist convert to what is to them a foreign religion, but rather an islam of their own ancestors, one and poisoned by the extremism we associate with wahhabism and al qaeda. the problem for us is that christianity was very much part of western culture and something that we were knowledgeable about and suited to fight over. islam is different. is hard for our government to be effective with the struggle of that religion. i just want to also note by the way ,-com,-com ma because charlie mentioned an awful, the journey. "witness" was one of the greatest autobiographical groups on extremism. perhaps one of the greatest novels about it. and they had great political impacts in part because they were great literary works, works of art. there are some islamic works about breaking with extremism. the islamist by ed hussein, radical i -- but i don't think there are any such works that are great works of art scene from the point

. my question is on religion. how big of a role does religion play in the overall aspect of terrorism. how big of a r ole has it played in the u.s.'s policy on counterterrorism? >>the question is what is the role of religion either from the terrorist perspective or the combating counterterrorism perspective. from the terrorist perspective what we have mostly found is that adherence from al qaeda broadly misinterpreted and taken extremist views and perverted islam as a religion to be able to coerce and otherwise control their followers in doing things that are very much what the tenants of islam would say. we quoted a scholar and others that talked about the prohibition of killing innocent civilians. when they talk about the majority of people being killed by al qaeda are muslims contradicted the religion of islam and pointed out they were violating the tenet. so in general, helping to highlight the perversion of the religion in terms of the information we are doing has been helpful and that is what was done with the deadly vanguards report. it identified the problems that al qaeda wa

humans? our modern human ancestors practiced ritual and religion. similar evidence for neanderthals has been elusive. then a team of archaeologists made an intriguing discovery in southern spain. their finds hint at the existence of a neanderthal ritual. inside this cave, a team led by michael walker excavated a deep shaft in which they found more than 300 bones from around ten neanderthals buried by rockfalls from the unstable ceiling. three of the neanderthals stood out. walker thinks they weren't necessarily the victims of a rockfall. if there are rocks falling on you from a natural rockfall, it would be very strange to find nobody trying to escape and one of them with the hands close to the head in almost sleeping position. narrator: although the bones of this young female are fused to the limestone rock and are hard to see, michael walker thinks her body may have been carefully arranged in a fetal position. if he's right, this was no rockfall. around 50,000 years ago, someone had intentionally buried her piling stones to protect her body. and this cave had yet mor

of freedom of religion and separation of church and state. >> roger williams was the founder of rhode island, the founder of providence, and also a founder of the first baptist church in america. williams was going -- born in london. his birth records were burned up in the great london fire of 1666. he became a chaplain for one of the chiefs. because he was a puritan and the church was cracking down and putting his people in jail, he fled england. he arrived in boston in february. he believed the state had no role to play in religion. this was an absolutely radical idea at his time. every country in europe had a state church, so did massachusetts and the plymouth colony. they all had their own state- supported churches. the taxes of the people paid for the ministers and the buildings. you had to go to church or they would come and get you and fine you. williams said the state has no role whatsoever to play in religion. eventually, he was put on trial there and convicted of sedition and heresy and was going to be shipped back to england where he probably would have died. before they could exe
of the people? this is a bunch of criminals. those who use a religion in order to kill, collectively, and support to gangsters. every time the army stands hand in hand with the people, they come closer to their demise. however, they began to kill in the front lines, and they used bloodshed, and because the ideology of religious difference is new to us as something strange to us, and therefore, it we have terrorists that describe themselves as jihadists -- al qaeda. they lead terrorist organizations on the ground, and those who are armed on the front line, they move to the back lines in order to use looting and feeding -- feeding -- thieving, those who know nothing but the language of killing and bloodshed. we brothers fight against this. many of them are not serious. they came for sinister ideologies and false ideologies they called a jihad, which is very far from jihad and islam. the people we are facing are those ideologues from al qaeda. we know how they were sponsored three decades ago by the west and the arab the money, and, of course, after the demise of the soviet union, they
to bear arms in this country and believe it is as core to them as freedom of speech or freedom of religion. i think the laws that are on the books now would not have kept someone like my father from having a gun. we have real issues on mental health that have to be addressed. we are not seeing money put into programs on the books. but i don't understand why anybody needs an assault weapon in this country. i hope that everybody will come to a table. otherwise people are going to go to their corners and fight not seeing what we need to see get done. >> when you see a movement to restrict gun ownership rights, the inevitable outcome is gun sales, magazine sales, ammo sales guthrough the roof. it is the polar opposite intention of what people on debbie's side. argument want to see. >> we saw this before president obam was elected, when hadt looked like he was going to be elected in 2008 and the time period between the inauguration, you see the big jump in gun sales. there has been some degree of... too much concern on the part of gun owners and people said, the president's going to take away a
. connell: think about this and take as you said take religion out of it for a moment because it brings up kind of the wider discussion of how do we use technology to, you know, make us more efficient or even make us safer. we're having all these discussions in schools about after the shooting in connecticut maybe something like this or more technology would be used. but you can't force people to do it, you're saying. >> let me try and crystallize the argument for you, one school of thought is you need to balance safety with freedom. and then freedom will include privacy. another school of thought is safety and privacy are not equal. privacy is the greater good. privacy is a natural right. i can keep myself safe, but i need the government to stay away from me to keep my privacy. there's no balance between them. it's a bias in favor of privacy. the burden should be on the government to prove why this is necessary, not on the defendant, the student, to prove why this is harmful. dagen: but the momentum is toward greater security. >> yes, the government either based on sound reasoning and log
among christians when it comes to gun control. i mean, a public religion institute survey which of taken before the newtown shooting showed that white evangelical protestants were less likely to favor tighter gun laws than catholics. white mainline protestants are religiously unaffiliated americans. why do you think that is? >> thank you for that question. i mean, i think that's a wonderful question. we should not be surprised that many of our people of faith in this country who are all americans, are very much passionate about the second amendment and gun rights. at the same time, we should not -- we should also not be surprised that there are just as many people of faith if not more who are all in favor of common sense gun laws and promoting a culture of peace and healing in our communities. and i believe that it is our time and our moment to look within ourselves and the principles of our faith to unite our country around a common moral imperative to address the gun violence that is in our country. even to those statistics that you've just lifted up, interestingly enough, the national
